From around the world…
I am having a very “Eastern” moment in my life…both personally and professionally. An acupuncture, eastern medicine and “hot-as-hell yoga” convert- I am finding myself drawn to all things that originate from the far east. Last weekend during a trip to the Berkshires, I came upon a delightful antique shop called The Library, amass with Asian antiques that Andrew and I completely drooled over (the store much more tempting than the site). This lacquer chair is so unique and gorgeous in person, with it’s little under-seat drawers- it would make a great side table or entry way accessory.
And there was a basket full of these pieces of printing blocks, used to print textiles between 10 and 50 years ago, that would look stunning grouped on a mantle as art objects. And how fun it is to own things with such a story and history.
And as a side note, for any of you avid readers out there with any interest in travel, self-discovery and pitch perfect hilarious writing, you MUST pick up a copy of “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert. Quite possibly, the best book I have ever read in my life.
